Gel Extensions Course

Nail enhancements are an increasingly popular treatment within the professional beauty industry. The last few years have seen the introduction of UV gel systems which can be used to provide natural looking overlays or enhancements.

UV gel nails are perfect for clients who are looking for a longer lasting nail treatment than a manicure/gel polish as they can last for as long as three weeks. Clients will need to return to the salon to have these removed or infilled, guaranteeing you repeat bookings.

The GTi Gel Nails course covers how to complete gel overlays and tip extensions as well as the maintenance, repair and removal of the treatment in order to provide a full gel nails service.

The course also covers reception and consultation, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to apply gel nails.

The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images, video clips and a voiceover to give you the best possible learning experience.

The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Gel Extension Nails.
